Is it difficult to replace fuel pump for a 2000 astro van

it should not be to difficult to replace. you will probably need to drop the gas tank down some and try to remove the fuel lines and wires from the pump be careful the fuel lines could be brittle and easy to break you will also need to make sure noting else is connected to the gas tank before you take it out. once the tank is out all you half to do is remove the old pump it is likely just held in by a snap ring and put the new pump in than put the fuel tank back up into the van and reconnect everything you took off. it is much easier to take the fuel tank out if it is empty. also I usually use a floor jack to hold the fuel tank when I am taking things off and putting things on.

2001 crystler town & country fuel pump

The Fuel pump is in the tank. The only thing I disagree with in emissionwiz post is whether to drain the tank or not. Chrysler started putting drains on the tanks in 2000 to make this easier when they went to a plastic fuel tank. I would drain the tank from the drain, disconnect the wiring then drop the tank to replace the pump. This all assumes that you verified that the fuse in the interior panel is not blown and the fuel pump relay in the power distribution box under the hood is still good.

Where is the fuel pump located

The electric fuel pump in this van like all fuel injected late model Dodges is located inside the fuel tank. You must drop the fuel tank out of the van to replace the pump.

On my 2002 Odyssey the fuel guage sensor is defective. Is it necessary to drop the gas tank to replace the sensor.?

the pump unit is accessed from a hole in the floor, you need to take out the rear seats and carpet. be sure to replace the gasket, lock nut and fuel line retainers. you are money ahead to replace the fuel pump unit (pump and sender assy)

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 99 ford e250 van

First, you will have to drop the tank. Tools you will need are ratchet and socket set, an impact wrench would help.

Put the van up in the air on a lift. Undo all brackets holding the fuel tank to the van. While undoing brackets, also disconnect fuel lines and electrical wires from the tank/fuel pump. When the brackets/straps are taken off, have a jack ready to lower the fuel tank down on. Now you can easily remove the fuel pump and put a new one in.
